Magdalene Omaha provides healing & recovery, housing, community, and economic self-empowerment opportunities for survivors of sex trafficking/prostitution, trauma, and addiction.
As noted in “Nebraska’s Commercial Sex Market,” published by the Women’s Fund of Omaha in 2017:
On average each month, 900 unique individuals are sold for sex in the state of Nebraska.
On average each month, 675 of those individuals are sold in the Omaha metropolitan area.
Each of those individuals may be sold multiple times a day.
In the majority of these transactions, force, fraud, or coercion is involved (meeting the legal definition of trafficking).
What is IFRD?
IFRD stands for International Female Ride Day. It is a global campaign introduced by Vicki Gray, director and founder of Motoress Magazine to ensure the growth of women in motorcycling. In the last ten years, women riders have doubled in numbers, making almost one in five riders on the road female. The focus of these IFRD rides is to get women riders and the men who support them to get out and "just ride". This one day is devoted to all women riders of all levels of ability and ages to demonstrate their personal passion for riding. You'll meet and network with other women who ride and find support and camaraderie, fostering new friendships by participating in the women's rides offered Saturday, May 1.
Q: Can men join the rides?
A: Absolutely! We just ask that the women ride up front and men ride toward the rear. If you choose to ride toward the rear with your man, you certainly may! It's all about what makes you happy!
Q: Where can I learn more about IFRD?
Q: What kind of bike do you have to ride?
A: Whatever bike you ride! IFRD doesn't restrict brands of bikes; you only need what you can ride safely at highway speeds an you need to be able to ride 100 miles between refueling.
Q: Are there any rules?
A: You must have active motorcycle insurance and a motorcycle endorsement on your drivers' license. And, you must understand that Nurse Ratchet is organizing this from the goodness of her heart, as dark and crusty as that may be, and will not accept responsibility for any injuries, thefts etc. from your voluntary participation in this event.
As always, ride your ride. If something is uncomfortable, use your best judgement and keep yourself safe, being mindful for the safety of the group you are with.
But most of all enjoy yourself!
